US Open Golf 2017 Leaderboard

US Open Golf 2017 Leaderboard”

Casey and other early starters were greeted by more challenging conditions than those they faced in the opening round as winds picked up and greens firmed around the links-style layout, making the longest course in U.S. Open history play even longer.

Henrik Stenson. Alex Noren. Unlikely as it seems, that was the last major he played on the weekend.

There is a palpable excitement around the grounds at Erin Hills due to the packed leaderboard that portends a thrilling weekend and the fact that the course has shown well-challenging yet fair. Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf each shot 7-under 63 in the first round at Baltusrol in the 1980 U.S. Open.

A commercial blimp crashed to the ground and caught fire just outside the course Thursday, about the time the county health department was analyzing samples that confirmed evidence of the E. coli bacteria in water at a hydration station near the 12th hole. There have been no reports yet of anyone getting sick. The cut was at 1-over 145, tying a U.S. Open record set in 1990 at Medinah. Brandt Snedeker, who is two shots off the lead, said it was unfortunate that so many big names are gone but also understandable.

Johnson, who had struggled to a three-over-par 75 in the first round, carded three birdies and four bogeys in a one-over-par 73.

Fowler's seven birdies were from no more than 12 feet, including three in a row around the turn. "So I did a really good job of staying present, staying focused on the next shot". "I couldn't possibly shoot any higher than I did". I got out of position, but it's the attitude, it's the grit that matters at the end of the week.

McIlroy could at least take heart from a strong finish on Friday, which saw him birdie four of the last six holes.

But it was too little too late for the Northern Irishman who remains anchored near the bottom of the leaderboard at five over.

It may not be as explosive as the scores of 65 and 66 we've seen from some players thus far, but if the pair can maintain their same level over the final two rounds, they'll stand an excellent chance of winning.

And the former Ryder Cup player then made it five birdies in succession - just one short of the US Open record equalled by Adam Hadwin on Thursday - by picking up shots on the first, second and third.

Englishmen Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood and Americans Brian Harman and Brooks Koepka are sitting at seven-under, a shot ahead of Fowler, also of the United States, who had a one-over-par and is tied with compatriots J.B. Holmes and Jamie Lovemark. "I think you've got a lot of great players on top of that leaderboard and you've got some guys that hit it forward, some guys that putt it great, some guys that do everything pretty good". "Yeah, it was a bit of a roller coaster".

Everyone expects the U.S. Open to get harder as the week goes on because it usually does.
